This past week I've been picking bouquets of peonies over here...doesn't get any better than this.  I've gone from lilacs to peonies.  Absolutely one of my fave flowers in my garden.  Of course once you pick them they have to go in every room in the house cuz they just smell so good...wish this was scratch and sniff. 

I like to put them in all the's beautiful to go to bed and wake up with that smell.  And just a little advice to parents out there, they make teenagers wake up much happier when you place them next to their bed!  ;)  
 I also put some next to my daughter when she was studying for exams.

I'm definitely going to be pinning these!

Enjoy your week!

French Lilacs

If you follow me on Instagram you know my love for flowers.   So what a surprise for me a couple of weeks ago when I walked into my friend's backyard and saw her French lilacs all in bloom.  I have a very small lilac that finally bloomed last year, but to see these towering in her backyard was so stunning.  She even sent me home with a bucket of them, which of course, went into every room in the house.
